Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Powder Foundation

$7 (amazon.com)

★★★★★

There’s no need to break the bank these days for quality. We love this Neutrogena Mineral Sheers to enhance your natural skin tone to elevate it. It’s not the highest coverage, and it doesn’t have the most shades available, but it’s light coverage is still a win in our books.

MAC’s Studio Fix

$35 (maccosmetics.com)

★★★★☆

A cult-classic, MAC’s Studio Fix powder foundation is known to do the work of a liquid foundation without sacrificing the feel of a compact. With a plush powder, it immediately gives you a flawless face, applying quickly, evenly and can be used both as a setting powder and on its own.

KVD Vegan Beauty Lock-It Powder Foundation

$20 (amazon.com)

★★★★

If full-coverage finish is what you want, this KVD Vegan Beauty Lock-It Powder Foundation does just that, it locks itself onto your skin and lasts all day, no problem. With 26 shades to choose from, it’s a great choice if you can match your shade.

Laura Geller New York Baked Balance-N-Brighten Foundation

$34 (amazon.com)

★★★★

We know that powered foundations don’t work well with dry skin types. But that doesn’t mean you can’t use a compact foundation, because this is really a baked cream formula. So, you apply it like a conventional powder formula, and it has hydrating ingredients like white tea extract and centella asiatica to prevent dryness.

Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Powder Foundation

$22 (fenty.com)

★★★★

With some crazy good reviews on Sephora, the Fenty Beauty powder foundation comes in 50-shades, and is known for its buildable coverage, has over 50 shades and is good enough to last all day.
